In the winter we like the Christmas markets so places like Austria & Germany.

I avoid summer travel, the closest has been May or October. We've done a number of trips to Germany, Austria, Belgium, France, Switzerland, Italy and England. What I'd really like to do would be to rent a car and drive to places that aren't as accessible from trains. I doubt I would ever do that since I don't like driving in foreign countries. Also the further out you go, the more likely you'll have language issues.

Maybe hire someone for a day or so and visit the countryside of various places. I've always wanted to visit more of the WW2 sites in Belgium and France. I've also haven't been to places like Prague, Budapest in more eastern Europe.

I've heard good things about Ireland.

I avoided Italy for a long time because I had a work trip to Naples and detested it but eventually we went to Milan, Bergamo, Lake Cuomo and really enjoyed it. My wife speaks fluent Spanish and we probably should do a trip there. I've only been to the Navy base (Rota) which was in a very nice location.

I think any of the above is still possible. Other places that would be interesting to see are in Asia, Australia, or South America but I don't see myself traveling there for a variety of reasons.
